Those of us who've tried can all attest: it's haaaaaard.
So rarely does one cliche so succinctly sum up something.
Remember this: if you can't openly discuss your feelings about how you're spending money, you'll have a hard time building a long-term relationship with this person.
Keep in mind that the tensions that arise now are opportunities to strengthen your relationship for the future.
Just remember: this is a note, not a Talmudic passage to be read and re-read for every hidden nuance, message and subtext.
(Being overly analytical can be a real burden here.) If you have an issue to resolve, try to do it over the phone or in person. To cut down phone costs, try calling your Beloved One when you know he or she won't be in – and leave a "thinking of you" message on voice mail.
He was in Israel and I was in the States and he somehow thought that calling at 3 a.m. If a phone call gets missed or an e-mail doesn't arrive, do not assume that your darling has run off with the cleaning lady or been hijacked. It's likely that one partner will need more communication more than the other. If you want more contact than your partner, try to be less demanding.how do i help make him belive in me and know i believe in him.we both know we love each other and we are doing all the right things to make it work but hes just not trusting me that much what do i do HELP?Building a new relationship is a whole lot harder than maintaining an existing one.The easiest one to weather is the temporary shift – if you're committed to the relationship, you just have to figure out a way to survive six difficult months. You can ease a lot of long-term discomfort and confusion by defining your expectations in advance.Or are you just trying to maintain the relationship as it stands now, perhaps in a different place?
